Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

SHARE

(2014) ★★½

Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Thursday 24 December, 4.15pm

Little Ben Stiller heads to London’s Big Ben and the British Museum with friends big-hearted (Robin Williams, RIP) and small (Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan) to recharge the magic of Ahkmenrah’s tablet. Which everyone surely remembers from Nights at the Museum 1 and 2. Rebel Wilson is a useful addition as a stroppy museum guard while, as Sir Lancelot, Dan Stevens does an agreeable impersonation of the young Cary Elwes in The Princess Bride.

Game for a laugh, he briefly enlivens proceedings before being stopped in his tracks by a couple of Camelot cameos so clumsily staged, they have to introduce themselves. Amid the chaotically conceived light shows, there are points high (an M.C. Escher lithograph comes to life) and low (cheeky monkey Dexter rains on Pompeii’s parade) and meh: London Calling by The Clash. Really? And musical cues from Kubrick’s 2001 and Hitchcock’s Psycho? Maybe it’s time for them to stop making an exhibition of themselves.

Certificate: PG
Duration: 98min
